Myths that Surround Cloud Computing
Over the past few years, the cloud is recognized as essential to expedite speed-to-market of services. Even though it grabbed the attention of many giant companies, still it is prone to a good deal of myth surrounding its real value by revolving around security and cost concerns.
Check out the following myths that are surrounding cloud computing.
Only for tech companies: Cloud computing impacts business in all aspects and at all levels. Even small-scale business can use this technology.
More often security risks: Data security measures must be taken by the people who are leveraging the cloud. The cloud-service providers can fortify the security posture.
Better work experience with the cloud: In some instances, the applications which are designed to run over dedicated servers cannot be deployed on the cloud. It can allow only applications which are explicitly designed to run on a cloud.

It is always cost-effective: It is always not profitable to run some applications on the cloud, but it can often cheaper which works best with range of workload demands.
Cloud is Virtualization: Virtualization can be done by software which proliferates the instances of operating system, network and hardware whereas cloud computing results from that manipulation.
Cloud is not for mission-critical use: Cloud computing is adopted in steps and all aspects of the business including mission-critical applications also.
Migrating to the cloud is more hassle-free: Creating the process workflow with the most trusted and experienced hosting provider can provide the best results with minimal downtime.
